The Eastern Consultative Assembly (ECA) will honour the leader of the IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in October, 2017 at the presentation of a book titled “HOW NNAMDI KANU RESTRUCTURED NIGERIA”.
According to a statement by Chief Mrs. Maria Okwor,deputy leader, Eastern Consultative Assembly (ECA),the book produced by the ECA, documents the travails, the journey and frustrations in the spirited attempt by good men and women to save Nigeria from collapse, through a holistic restructuring of the polity back to true federalism and regional autonomy.
The book reveals how Nigeria is crippled by an over-powerful center, prebendalism, unitary structure, ethnic divisions, corruption and ill-fitting military constitution. The book also recalls the struggles by Late Anthony Enahoro, Late Abraham Adesanya, Late Rotimi Williams, Late Tunji Braithwaite etc. to reconstruct and redesign Nigeria through a wholesome restructuring of the polity that will throw up a new people’s constitution that would be affirmed at a referendum.
The book exposes the reasons why enemies of progress have consistently killed reports of past National Conferences, just so they could continue to hold Nigerians hostage and deny the people opportunity to take back their country from the vicious cabal that believes they are born to rule and dominate others forever.
Kanu is being honoured for achieving under two years the restructuring of Nigeria, something that seemed impossible just two years ago.
As every group and government has set up their own committee on restructuring, going round organizing public hearings/sittings, the unborn generations of Nigeria will forever remain grateful to Nnamdi Kanu for moving the restructuring agenda from the realm of speculation into reality, something he achieved at great sacrifice.
